Guided Tour: A style icon with a unique structure.
18.06.2018 - 23/24 June is "Day of Architecture and Civil Engineering 2018". We invite all those interested to join us on a guided tour to see the freshly renovated Finnlandhaus through the eyes of a structural engineer.
The building’s form of construction, dating from 1964, is unique in Hamburg. The floors are suspended upwards in the facade axes via slender steel constructions. In the uppermost storey the load of the structure is set down on the central bracing core via pre-stressed concrete trusses. In the 1960s, a bunker was integrated into the two basement storeys. It is no longer required, so that new useable floor areas could be created here.
Guided tours start on Saturday, 23 June at 10, 11, 12 hrs., Meeting point: Esplanade 41
